Gosset Grand Millesime 1999Dom Perignon 2000Castillo Ygay 1978Vega-Sicilia 1996 Unico

The DP ’00 was, for me at least, in a transition phase towards maturity, and didn’t show as well as the Gosset ’99; Ygay ’78 was really bright, lovely, and mellow, compared to the far more youthful but still very well-made Vega-Sicilia ’96. A night of excellent food, wines and company. We thought we couldn’t stomach anymore food after R’s extremely delicious angel-hair pasta with mentaiko, konbu and crab meat (and that was just the main course!) but we polished off the scrummy homemade apple pie and vanilla bean ice cream lovingly prepared by S in the end. A starvation diet won’t even save me from expanding sideways now 🙂
